Iceland is definitely one of the most breathtaking and popular tourist attractions in Europe. While the summer season is a tourist peak time, it is almost good to plan a trip to this stunning locale during the cold season or springtime. Find out how is the weather in Iceland? It will give you the most apposite visiting times around the year. Once you reach here, visit the picturesque tourist spots during the night and check out the famous highlights during the day raking in the clemency bliss and the mesmerizing landscape. Here are a few tips to make your Iceland trip even more indelible and adventurous.

Sightseeing at Night Time

Iceland is not all about night clubs and bars with terrace cafes serving tasty local delights, it is more of a mystical wonderland that is brimming with natural scenic beauty and artistic wonders. In summers, the midnight sun’s light lasts all day. Feast your eyes on these during your night travels enjoying the silence around on the thoroughfares, the villages, and towns embracing the stunning terrain and the more inviting wilderness. You can also opt for midnight sun tours like Golden Circle tours, midnight sun mountain hiking tours and horse riding tours arranged by expert guides.

Get Your Farm Yiddish

Do not forget to drop in at one of the local farmhouses for some mouthwatering local delights & food supplies. There are a number of rest and service stations along the ring road that you definitely do not want to miss. The rub, however, is that they offer costly food. Therefore, you might want to try one of the local farm products offered by the farmers. These include meat, seafood, and organic fruit & vegetables that come at a low price. You could also grab fresh fruit, bottled water, vegetables as well as groceries  & supplies from little self-service huts available for travelers.

Connect With The Locals

While it is good to research about Iceland before you visit the place to understand the culture, it helps to connect with the locals and bond with them to make your trip more memorable. The residents are amicable, warm and hospitable. They will make you feel at home with their gentle smiles and friendly disposition. As per the World Economic Forum, Iceland is the most amiable place for visitors. It offers loads of comfort and peace to travelers. Start up a chat with a total stranger and they are sure to offer valuable information to help you out. They will tell you about culture, society, routes, food, and places to shop at.

Stay At A Farmhouse

Iceland also offers comfortable farmstays providing tourists a true feel of Icelandic culture. Enjoy comfortable accommodation, scenic views, delicious food and recreational activities including guided tours across the farmlands. It is a great way to get to know the culture and connect with their traditional ethos. These Farmstays range from simple shared rooms, spacious dwellings and private huts to cozy cottages. You would be able to enjoy horse riding tours, guided walks, participation in a farming activity, sports opportunities and food at affordable rates. I recommend you make a reservation in one of these farmhouses well ahead of time to avoid the hassles and make your stay more comfortable.
